Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
It happens that some have recurrent malaria. Malaria is caused by a parasite plasmodium.There are very effective medicines available to eradicate Plasmodium completely.It is possible that your father might have been infected with different variety of parasite than the previous one.I advise you to visit your Physician and get him evaluated thoroughly.Regular treatment can definitely eliminate malaria from his body.

Good luck &Take care
